Otsu.Vihara - Phearofobia [nsh095]
In which Andrew Latham, better known as Mayfairgrin, lets off some steam. From the blissful ambience of opening track "Psybuuria" to the thundering three-part epic "Narrow", and the varying degrees of what comes inbetween, Phearofobia is a study in harshness and relentlessness.

I like it!
Very mellow to start and then a twisted kind of darkness kicks in. Just when you're totally lost in the wash of sound- someone plugs the machine in and it comes rattling to life. A huge, churning, behemoth of spinning and clanking metal monstrosity like a factory inside of a beat sequencer. (At this bowled-over point I had to look at the name of the artist again)
Reminiscent of the atmosphere that Oliver Lieb could create back in the day. (Enormous Compliment, that)

Emphasis is on originality in this fresh blend of atmospheres and beats. Strong on texture, strong on melody-- a great way for me to usher in the weekend. Thank you!
